Short summary
Current water quality problems due to intensification of corn in agricultural watersheds is expected to be exacerbated by the projected change in climate further in the 21st century. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop alternative biofuel cropping systems and/or implement effective management practices to counteract future water quality problems that could develop from relying on extensive production of row crops in Corn Belt region watersheds.
